SUNCORP SUPER NETBALL BREAKS FOR NETBALL WORLD CUP

 

The NSW Swifts remain on top of the Suncorp Super Netball ladder as the competition pauses ahead of the 2019 Netball World Cup (NWC).



 
For the first time, the season now breaks for a four-week period and will resume on Saturday 27 July for the final five home-and-away rounds before a three-week finals series to be contested by the top four teams, culminating in the Grand Final on Sunday 15 September.
 
The timing of the NWC presented a unique challenge for the league to manage, with 31 players selected to represent their country at the tournament (see list below), solidifying Suncorp Super Netball as the world’s premier netball competition.
 
Suncorp Super Netball players not taking part in the NWC will continue to train with their teams during the four-week hiatus, with clubs expected to provide an opportunity for a break during that time.
 
At the conclusion of the World Cup, the representative players will return to their respective Suncorp Super Netball clubs for the final five rounds of the Suncorp Super Netball season. Measures have been implemented allowing clubs to increase final squads from 10 to 12 players for Rounds 10 and 11, with all players able to be substituted into the match at any time.
 
Kicking off on 27 July, Round 10 will see a Queensland derby and a double-header at Melbourne Arena:

  • Queensland Firebirds v Sunshine Coast Lightning – 3pm – QSNC, Brisbane
  • West Coast Fever v NSW Swifts – 6pm – RAC Arena, Perth
  • Collingwood Magpies v GIANTS Netball – 1pm – Melbourne Arena
  • Melbourne Vixens v Adelaide Thunderbirds – 3:30pm – Melbourne Arena

The Netball World Cup kicks-off on Friday 12 July with 16 nations contesting for the right to be crowned world champions.

The Samsung Diamonds depart Australia for the UK on Wednesday 3 July where they will spend a week in Manchester finalising preparations before arriving in Liverpool on 9 July for the tournament.
